. last week i had a chance to walk with john podesta head of the center for american progress and former chief of staff for president clinton who knows a thing or two. >> you had a congress that was not controlled by the democratic party. you became the master using executive power. president obama faces the same problem as we look at it, the range of issues that he has to deal with. take climate issues, for example. is there anything that he can do on that particular issue administratively? >> yes, i think in the second term in particular you have to learn to use the full sweep of the power you have under the constitution and the laws of the united states. you mentioned climate specifically. if you look at what the president has been able to accomplish it's really through the executive authority. he raised the average for automobiles and light trucks and now for heavy trucks. that's contributed significantly to reduction in co2 emissions in this country. president von trap kept his copenhagen pledge to keep his reduction on a basic 2005 level by 2020. that's because he has taken

house speaker john boehner met privately at the white house. their first one-on-one session since the election. neither side gave any details about what was discussed. instead they issued identical statements saying that lines of communication remain open. at the same time the sunday talk shows highlighted a partial split in g.o.p. ranks over letting the president have higher tax rates on top earners. tennessee senator bob corker told fox news sunday that republicans should give ground on taxes and concentrate on long-term spending cuts. >> the focus then shifts to entitlements. maybe that puts us in a place where we actually can do something that really saves this nation. so there is a growing body -- i actually am beginning to believe that is the best route for us to take. >> woodruff: but on nbc, house majority whip kevin mccarthy countered that that approach is the wrong way to go. >> it doesn't solve the problem. the president is asking for higher rates, he's asking for more revenue. most economists agree the best way to get that is through closing special loopholes. when you

with another negotiation with the white house and house speaker john banner and the fiscal cliff in a this side seems willing to bend. the president insisting that the expiring tax cuts be renewed for all but the wealthiest americans. the republicans insisting they're deeper cuts in entitlement programs like medicare. neither side has given the very many specifics of what they plan to cut. a likely compromise would include tax increases on the top tax bracket from 35 to 37%. and cigna because the medicare and the debt ceiling is also looming in these talks. the treasury saying the u.s. is likely to hit its 16 part 4 trillion dollar debt limit by the end the year. the treasury could use of credit measures that would stave off any u.s. debt default until mid february. a lot to deal with for congress. they have to get a deal done. they really only have the next week and half before they go on recess. as far as where the talks are right now? they are nowhere. >> we will be back in a couple of minutes. watching wall street the dow finished with a modest gain of 15 points. dow futures are u
